“Our customized whole body cryotherapy can deliver unique physiological and psychological benefits, from accelerated regeneration after exercise to improved performance and sleep, enhanced pain threshold and muscle strength, reduced muscle spasticity and inflammatory activity, and shorter recovery time after sports trauma”, explained Ann Callens, Cryo Segment Manager‒Europe at Air Products.

Callens also pointed out that studies show the way individuals respond to whole body cryotherapy can vary significantly, therefore, it is critical that treatment is tailored to each person and his or her own unique requirements, which to date has not been the case.

PolarFit® Care taps into knowledge and learning data collected by users globally. Extensive data mining is used to fine tune programs and treatment regimens, ensuring that the treatment and approach continue to evolve. The safety and well-being of users remains paramount. Consequently, all PolarFit® Care equipment uses indirect whole body cryotherapy, the safest kind of cryotherapy on the market, which ensures the nitrogen used to cool the unit never comes into contact with the user’s body.
